    When surgery is done IN THE HOSPITAL, are the surgeon & doctor fees covered under Part A or Part B.

    Health Net says Part A because it is done in the hospital.

    Blue Shield says Part B because it is for doctor services in and out of hospital.

    How can anyone talk to people about Medicare without knowing the basics?

    Was I right on "Part B"? I had a 50/50 chance.

    Part B is 80/20, not 50/50.

    Go back to class. Rick is expecting you.

    if health net is a part C plan then the A and B charges are bundled together for IP charges and consumer pays only the IP co pays of plan

    if the bcbs is a med supp then yes part b pays for physician charges IP and OP
